Literature and ideology: the penetration of Anglo-Irish literature in Spain
Keywords:Literatura irlandesa, Literatura gallega, Influencia ideológica, Influencia literaria, Identidad, Celtismo
AbstractOne important way of penetration of Irish literature and culture in Spain was through the northwestern part of the country, Galicia in particular. Geographical, historical and ideological facts favoured a trend towards everything connected with Ireland. Therefore, Irish literature was studied, translated and became a model for some Galician critics and writers. One reason for this approach was entirely ideological: Ireland stood for a representative of the Celtic countries and Galicia was one of their members, or so they claimed. The implications of the Irish Literary Renaissance were carefully followed and, as a consequence, brought about cultural and literary manifestations inspired by the Irish movement.
